I feel like all I do is complain when I post. I am grateful for many things and really quite lucky. I just have to ask... has anyone else had a reaction to steroids while on Taxol? Some one told me (thank God) that they can make you very emotional. I am sitting her with tears running down my face and cannot stop. I am 47, the chemo may have kicked me into menopause. All advise appreciated!

They suck for sure. Had it when I did taxol too, but only twice....refused them after that. They're horrible. You have to sleep, but you can't...you're not hungry but you eat like a pig...they can turn a perfectly calm person into a blubbering mess.

I am now on hormone replacement therapy... And nearly three months after last treatment step - which was bmx.
Taxol wasn't too bad for me. - I feel like it really was the ac that truly kicked me all the way into menopause....

I've now been on the hrt for about two weeks, and I am feeling better. I am sleeping twice as much and having less than half the hot flashes. After reading quite a few articles from the peer reviewed scientific literature, I feel REALLY GOOD about being on the hrt.
I'm still in a bit of a cancer rage.... But maybe it's eased up a bit now that I'm feeling better and sleeping better.....
